The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension will investigate Friday's officer-involved shooting in Eden Prairie, and they've said it could take weeks or more to complete.

Mylan Masson, the Director of the Law Enforcement Program at Hennepin Technical College says "they are looking for all the evidence that they possibly can, so they know what's going on. They're going to get interviews from all the officers."

As Masson gave us a look inside an investigation of this type she said "no officer wants to kill anybody. No officer wants to get into a chase because they know of so many things that can happen, but the reason they went into this chase must have been severe."

Authorities have said the suspects in the shooting had been reported to have fled the scene of a crash they were involved in, and were driving erratically at high speeds. The exact details of the shooting have not been released. 

Four officers have been placed on leave during the investigation.
